"For You I'll Die" as written by and Marion Raven....
You said I'm yours to keep
With your voice so deep
But you were just talking in your sleep

I'll do just what you crave
My life for you I'll waive
All I get is the spot next to your grave

And you're a fool to not see
I'm not hanging here
to keep you company

[*]
But what am I suppose to do when all hope is gone?
How am I suppose to leave you when you're the only one?
I made a deal with Mr. Hades
my soul he wants to buy
For you I'll die

Oh this is the end
My only friend, the end
are words from our favourite band
I know we're not astray
And my love won't decay
Are things that you'll never say

It is strange how time flies
It's been a year that's gone by
and you don't know the colour of my eyes

[*]
For you I'll die

No oh, no oh oh, no oh
And you're a fool to not see
I'm not hanging here
to keep you company
It is strange how time flies
It's been a year that's gone by
and you don't know the colour of my eyes

[*]
For you I'll die
For you I'll die
For you I'll die

    General CommentThe piano is simple and beautiful. Her voice is so poignant. Can feel the pain in this song - it is really hard to get over a person who corresponds to what you've always looking and wishing for, and that he didn't feel the same.
    Guess this is dedicated to her ex bf Zac Hanson "I know this is the end, My only friend the end, Are words from our favorite band"... The real word is "my favorite band".

    General Comment"I know this is the end
    My only friend the end"

    That's from The Doors "The End":

    "This is the end
    Beautiful friend
    This is the end
    My only friend, the end"

    General CommentMarion's comments on what the song means:

    "For You I'll Die" was inspired by the love Jim Morrison shared with his long-time companion Pamela Courson, coupled with their stormy relationship, separations and reunions. Raven wrote the ballad after reading the American singer's biography.
    “ I was in this Jim Morrison period where I was listening to the box set, reading his biography and watching the movie, I was very touched by Jim's relationship with Pamela, how she would always be there for him. The song is about being willing to do that for someone, but getting nothing in return except a spot in the grave next to them. "
